It’s no secret — change is difficult. Everyone knows it. Yet we all often wish to change something about our personal health behaviors, habits or lifestyles. Fortunately, the real secret is that meaningful, successful and sustainable change is possible!

Change is a process of transformative self-enrichment. And it’s easier once you know how to successfully undertake the change you wish to achieve. The problem is most people simply don’t have the right tools, resources or knowledge of how health behavior change works for them. After all, changing our behaviors is a very personal thing to do. Celebrity diets and cookie-cutter fads don’t work for everyone — but we often assume they do. And when they don’t work for you, you think you’ve failed and give up.  But you haven’t failed — you simply didn’t have the right thing for you!

Research also shows that about 20% of the population is preparing to take “change action” at any given point of time. So rest assured you are not alone if you are not quite ready for full-on action. And sometimes, people jump into action without taking time to prepare for the drastic changes they are about to encounter. Without the appropriate “prep time,” they are setting themselves up for a greater likelihood of failure.

In my blogs and my book, Change your Mind, Change your Health, you will discover which of the five stages of change you are currently in. You’ll also learn about the best, most relevant techniques for you at your given stage of change to empower you to move closer to action. Oh, and I almost forgot the most important part — You’ll have FUN in the process!

I’m here for you, to help you change in your way and at your pace — to transform your health and your life, and achieve an independent, self-assured and sustainable sense of total wellbeing.

Let the change begin!
